The river has been designated as the "Niobrara Scenic River" by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and National Park Service.
The topography of the ranch consists of canyons and creek bottoms. The property has mature pine and cedar with a majority of oak trees in the creek bottoms. This combined with live water make the ranch a big game mecca.
The ranch supports a local elk herd of nearly 100 animals. 400 class bulls are not uncommon. The whitetail deer hunting is world class, with trophies ranging from 170 to 200 inches taken yearly. Mule deer and turkeys can be found on the ranch in increasing numbers.
There are multiple spring fed creeks on the ranch that support the wildlife as well as grazing cattle. The ranch grazes 180 cow/calf pairs for 5 months. With cash rental rates in excess of $350 per pair, Tarbell Creek Ranch has great income. The seller states that the carrying capacity could be increased with water development on the West side.
Outlaw Doc Middleton had a hideout cabin on the Tarbell Creek Ranch. Remnants can still be found today. The life of the notorious horse thief has been chronicled in numerous books. He has been etched into the history of the Great American West.
